INTRODUCTION:
Welcome to my achievement guide and roadmap for achieving 200 on Glow Artisan. This game is only available on a Windows 7 phone. This is a very entertaining puzzle game that starts off real nice and easy but becomes extremely complicated. Most of the achievements are related to going through the game solving all 84 puzzles and then doing so in a certain amount of moves or time.


GETTING STARTED:
First things first. You want to start the Tutorial to learn the rules of this simple puzzle game and to also net the "Color Theory 101" achievement. You should obtain a Gold Move Medal on the Apprentice #1 puzzle to net the "Gold Rush" achievement, as this puzzle only take two moves to solve. The puzzles are broken down into 4 sections. The first three sections have 24 puzzles each and they are broken down by difficulty; Apprentice, Artisan and Master. There is a Bonus Puzzle that is unlocked for every 6 puzzles you complete, for a total of 12 Bonus Puzzles. With a grand total of 84 puzzles.

When you complete all puzzles for a particular section you will also complete the Trophy for that section. There are four achievements related to completing all 24 Apprentice puzzles and finshing the Apprentice Trophy: "A First Time for Everything," "Two Out of Four Ain't Bad," "Third Time's a Charm," and "Clear a Space on the Mantle." Completing the remaining 60 puzzles and their respective trophies unlocks an achievement for each section; "Gonna Need a Bigger Shelf" (Artisan), "Master Makes Three" (Master), and finally "Take a Puzzling Vacation" (Bonus). Additionally, you are limited to solving a group of 6 puzzles at a time and you are unable to move onto the next 6 puzzles until you complete the group of 6 you are on. Auto Solve does not ruin your chance at achievements, but will not give you the gold solution.

You can follow my Gold Move Medal Solutions Guide or solve them all on your own to net the "Slick Moves" (completing 42 of the Gold Move Medals) and "Master of Moves" (completing all 84 of the Gold Move Medals) achievements. Finally, this leaves us with the Gold Time Medal related achievements. These will be the most difficult as there are no tricks that I have found other than memorizing the Gold Move Solutions and trying relentlessly to beat the time. "Time is on Your Side" should be no trouble to complete as this is for beating one time. Finishing half the Gold Time Medals will present a challenge and will net you "Half-Time Show." Finally you may go mad when beating all the required times to unlock the "Lord of Time" achievement. The last two achievements are for creating your own puzzles; one for using a picture on your phone "...It'll Last Longer" and finally the secret achievement for spending a certain amount of time creating a puzzle - "Don't Rush an Artist."

CONCLUSION:
This game logs all of your statistics, including total medals and the level of medal (Gold, Silver, or Bronze) you have on each puzzle for both MOVES and TIME. As well what your top time for each puzzle is. You can even track your times versus your friends on the leaderboards. Finally, if you are color blind, there is an option for that as well. I hope this helped you on your way to 200.
